Samsung SE-T084L Slimline DVD Burner Review

The Samsung SE-T084L was able to burn all our tested CD-R media with excellent/very good quality.

DVD±R writing quality was also of a high standard and on most media very good indeed.

The software bundle is also of a high standard and should provide all the essential tools for burning CD and DVD media.

The Samsung SE-T084L is small and easily portable and consumes a minimal amount of power.

The Samsung SE-T084L also supports most currently available media formats including DVD-RAM.

The Samsung SE-T084L also supports the LightScribe direct to disc labelling system, allowing pictures and text to be printed to special LightScribe media.

The Samsung SE-T084L is beautifully designed and has a very sleek and sexy look and the build quality is excellent.

The main negative points:


There are not many negative things to say about the Samsung SE-T084L. The drive is slow at reading and writing compared to a modern 18x/20x DVD Re-Writer.
